A straight-up stunner! "Classic Nils Venge Cabernet Sauvignon ... 92 Pts" -- Robert Parker Jr, Wine Advocate
93 PTS -- SF International Wine Competition (Gold Medal)
Only 79 cases made. Nils Venge's Reserve Cabernet is an iconic must-have from Napa Valley. Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, barreled 24 months in 100% French oak, and held in bottle for another 24 to rest before release. This is a rare and rewarding vintage, complementary to dining and friendly to the palate with smooth, balanced dark berry flavors. Phenomenal finish.
Currently in wide release! Rare Napa Valley-grown Sangiovese is a light to medium-bodied stunner and a local favorite, growing right around the corner from Saddleback's Oakville estate. Aromas of cherries, pomegranate on the palate balanced by black olive and espresso, and a seriously creamy finish. Complements all varieties of picnic fare, lush Italian red sauces and warming temps.
*A Posse wine club selection for March* Returning after last vintage's sell out, our Pinot Blanc is a unique and treasured Valley find. Sought after for its bright, floral aromas and flavors of stone fruit and silky honey, this medium-bodied white wine is a great pick for pairing with brunch and food in general.
Another Winery Exclusive! Summertime requires a Go-Plan: at least a few bottles of rosé on hand at any given moment. Strikingly fragrant, this blush, dry rosé will tickle your palate with bright, enticing flavors to pair excellently with picnics and pontoon boats.
Our flagship wine, this vintage features a fruit-forward nose, a bold structure and a dense, full body. Lots to excite the palate here. Very typical of the 2013 vintage from Napa Valley, this wine is settling into its "drink now" phase, and will be quite palatable for years to come.
No Jam in Sight! Here is a rare, prized find from a hillside in Yountville out of the Mello Vineyard: perfectly handcrafted Napa Valley Malbec.
SINGLE-VINEYARD CHARDONNAY. This age-worthy "collectors' Chardonnay" hails from the small, cherished Sangiacomo Vineyard not far from the town square in Sonoma in the Carneros District in the cool south end of Napa & Sonoma valleys. Acquired by Nils with our faithful Posse wine club shipments in mind, and produced with the utmost attention, this full-bodied Chardonnay is a perfect companion for those special occasions and the Chardonnay connoisseur.
Rich and robust, this 100% Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon shows all the hallmarks of the 2013 valley vintage. Brilliant scarlet in the glass, and vibrant to the nose. Aromas of dark black cherry and a hint of anise are followed by bright, velvety flavors of clove, cassis and blackberry. 70 cases made.
Sorry, we are sold out of this vintage.
A Saddleback step into Grenache sourced from Frediani Vineyards in Calistoga brings about an appealing medium-to-dense bodied red, with rich plum and ripe pomegranate flavors, and supple tannins.
